A swim in the Bosphorus?

The Bosphorus looked so inviting on the weekend. The weather was just a little sticky, the water glistened. We didn't venture in though. Apparently the currents can be strong and although we saw others swimming I'm not so sure about how clean it is.

Thousands of ships sail along the Bosphorus every year carrying cargo, petrol and gas. Although it is beautiful to watch the huge ships sailing past, they bring with them the risk of accidents because of the heavy water traffic and pose a hazard for the gorgeous and historic yalis and mosques that line the shores.

These dogs didn't seem to mind though!
